Event Stewards: Mattea di Lanciano, Alia la rousse & Dame Ismay of Giggleswick

Do you find your persona wandering the entire historical gambit from 1 AD through 1600 AD? Do you find yourself waking up in a peplos, spending the day in an apron dress, and retiring for the evening in a ruff and hoop skirts? Is this scenario complicated further by the fact that your persona is male? If any of this sounds familiar, you owe it to yourself to come spend the weekend indulging your inner time-traveler at Black Oak Lodge 2010: Crossroads in Time on March 19, 20 and 21, 2010.

The event is once again set in the cool green forests of coastal Caid. Accommodations include a cozy bunk in an enclosed wooden cabin for two nights.

Activities for the Weekend Include: Round table discussions about personae development: Please bring your favorite personae with all the accoutrements that make you who you are (as opposed to when you are someone else).

Three different raffles featuring the best prizes EVER, designed with just YOU in mind, which you are automatically entered into by a) showing up and b) being a current member of the SCA (attendance at the Feast on Saturday Night is required to win).

A Children’s Scavenger Hunt where YOU might be one of the items to be found.

Rapier and Armored Lists full of chivalric combat, heroic deeds, and potentially convoluted rules designed to stimulate your imagination. (In keeping with the event theme, additional points may be awarded for dispatching your opponents in chronological order).

Numerous arts and sciences classes, Scriptorium, and the Annual Lady Kaarna Memorial Purple Dessert Contest.

The Bard of Darach Bardic competition, hosted by the current Bard of Darach, Mistress Eilidh Swann.

Meals included with the weekend include a delicious soup on Friday evening, Breakfast on Saturday and Sunday mornings, lunch on Saturday, and for Saturday evening: The Most Delicious Feast in the History of Food!! Due to site restrictions, attendance at this event is will be very limited and by pre-registration only. Registration forms and additional details are available at
